While the world's top models have genetics to thank for their lithe frames, diet and exercise obviously play a role in keeping their bodies bikini-ready year round. To that end, it's admittedly fascinating to see what supermodels eat on a daily basis (although we can't say we'd necessarily adopt their strict eating plans ourselves). It appears that supermodels Gisele Bündchen, Miranda Kerr, and Lily Aldridge all stick to largely plant-based diets rife with fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, as reported by Vogue. Below, see the details of their unique diet plans and the foods that keep their bodies in tip-top shape.
Giselle Bündchen: The Plant-Based Diet
Bündchen and husband Tom Brady stick to a famously strict plant-based diet designed by personal chef Allen Campbell. It reportedly consists of almost 80% vegetables, in addition to millet, quinoa, beans, and grass-fed steak, duck, and wild salmon for protein. The couple has eschewed white sugar, white flour, iodized salt, caffeine, fungus, and nightshades (tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, eggplant) altogether. Avocado ice cream is considered an indulgence.
Miranda Kerr: The Blood Type Diet
Created by naturopath Peter J. D'Adamo, ND, the blood type diet is designed specifically for each of the four blood types. Miranda Kerr reportedly falls into the type A group, which means she sticks to a largely vegetarian diet including soy proteins, grains, and fresh, organic vegetables. "Devotees of the blood type A program … [have a] lowered BMI, waist circumference, blood pressure, cholesterol, insulin, and other significant markers," adds Vogue.
Lily Aldridge: The Sakara Life Diet
It appears that the Victoria's Secret model is living the Sakara Life—her devotion to the meal delivery service even inspired a limited-edition meal plan bearing her name last year. The program is brimming with fresh, organic vegetarian breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and drinks, making Aldridge fully onboard with the idea of "supernutrition without any of the shopping, chopping, or portioning."
